Idea for VE Pro -- 'Tabs' for all your instances

One of the very few complaints I have about VE Pro is that it can get to be a mess when handling multiple instances connected to a DAW session. Often times with my Logic sessions I'll have up to 5 or 6 instances of VE Pro Server. I know it's theoretically possible to have ALL my samples coming out of a single instance, but for organizational purposes I like to spread the instances across instrument groups.

An idea I have for making VE Pro more streamlined would be to implement a 'Tab' system for all instances -- kind of how web browsers like Firefox, Safari, & Chrome handle tabs for different web pages.
In my mind there would be a 'master' VE Pro Server window, and then each instance would create a new tab within that master window.

Anyone have any thoughts on this?

Yes, this is a good idea indeed. It has been proposed by a few people already. There are some technical challenges in implementing it like this however, but we're definitely considering it.

I would like a tab per MIDI Port, as using any more than one Port means a huge amount of scrolling to find Instruments.

+1! And of course I would also pay an upgrade fee for new and cool features, I personally don't expect to get features that are tricky to implement for free. I hope that the other (happy) users feel the same.

I'm glad to hear this has been a well-requested idea already.

It would be great, if in the meantime, there were a key-command to flip through our currently-open VE Pro windows. If there already is a key-command for this, or another way to do this (on Mac OS), I'd like to hear.

Thanks.

Command-tilde (` - to the left of the '1' key above TAB) is your friend.

Thank you! I never knew of that command. Very useful.

You can actually already access the different windows in a VE Pro Server session very easily using the Exposé feature on Mac. You can also assign a shortcut to do this for all windows of a single application (such as VE Pro Server). To check or change your Exposé settings, just click the Apple menu (top left of the screen at all times), then "System Preferences...", "Exposé & Spaces" and finally "Exposé".

Bringing this back from the dead. Some of the shortcuts/expose suggestions don't work if your slave is a pc, at least to my knowledge.  Tabs for instances would be wonderful!

Now you can use the Event Plugin and not need different instances...
